The champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception, held in the Rotunda, was sponsored by the Alumni Association.  In addition to the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, the event was attended by the College President and College Board of Trustees, Foundation Director and Foundation Board, College faculty and staff and other dignitaries.

The ACC/CCC Alumni Association hosts an awards program annually, recognizing alumni who have set themselves apart through their service to the community and/or Auburn-Cayuga Community College, its Foundation or its Alumni Association.  Selection of recipients is based on a range of criteria which include volunteer service, involvement in civic functions, or vocational achievements, to name a few.   Recipients exhibit qualities symbolic of the mission of the Alumni Association.  Nomination forms are available on the College’s Alumni page or through the Alumni Office.
